Meet Dr. Griggs

Dr. Henry G. Griggs, Jr. was raised in Florence, AL. After graduating from Coffee High School in 1993, he attended Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. In 1997, he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy. His interest in health professions led him to attend the University of Alabama School of Dentistry. He graduated from Alabama’s Dental School in 2001 with the highest of honors and was elected into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a national honor dental society, which is awarded to the top 10% of each graduating class.

Dr. Griggs then joined the United States Air Force and served his country as an officer and a general dentist. He was fortunate to begin his service with a three-year tour at Ramstein AFB, Germany. He completed his duty with a one-year assignment to Tyndall AFB in Panama City, Florida.

He returned to his home state to further his studies in Orthodontics at UAB,  where in April of 2008 he received his degree in Orthodontics and  Dentofacial Orthopedics after three-years of intensive study. He received his Master’s degree in clinical dentistry during this time as well.

He is a second generation orthodontist and frequently consults with his father, Dr. H Gilman Griggs of Florence, to better serve his patients through the wisdom gained from 35 years of active orthodontic practice.
